Okada Manila is Asia’s newest integrated entertainment resort and one of the largest ultra-luxury casino resorts in the world. Most companies, when implementing systems, have legacy technology to contend with, but not Okada Manila. They were in the unique position of installing a brand-new end-to-end technology solution as part of the design and development of the property. With a workforce of 6,000 employees that is expected to double when the resort is fully developed, Okada believed that the workspace of the future needed to be mobile.
We went through a variety of products before making our selection, and we found Citrix to be one of the most advanced virtual platforms in the industry. Over the last several months, we have hired hundreds of people. Through our partnership with Citrix, we are able to look at the future and plan for what will be an extraordinary experience. Receiving this award from Citrix is a great confirmation of our technology vision for the future. — Dries Scott, Senior Vice President, Information Technology, Okada Manila
On the resort grounds, Okada employees are servicing guests and tending to their every need, while, behind the scenes, they are ensuring that operations are running smoothly. To make all this possible, Okada chose Citrix Workspace Suite™, along with NetScaler and Cisco ACI, to allow employees to stay productive anywhere across the 44-hectare property. Through the integration of Citrix products, Okada is defending against the external threat of cybersecurity breaches and possible internal threats, such as information being leaked to competitors.
Today, Okada has 40,000+ network devices in use, all powered by Citrix technology. Along with that comes peace of mind. Okada doesn’t have to worry about reworking computers when employees leave or lose a device, and they can easily add on new employees and devices as the company grows. Through their partnership with Citrix, Okada was able to create an integrated experience that reflects the extraordinary vision of this luxurious resort.
